View Full Version : Veggie Chips....
02-18-2008, 09:04 PM
So...I see lots of people talking about chips on here. I am very interested in trying the potato chips, it seems someone had some success. However when I lived in Maryland, at my hfs we had these veggie chips in the bulk section. I was wondering if you could dehydrate veggies, i.e. carrots, zucchinis, etc. to make chips. I feel like the simple answer is yes and this seems obvious, but no one ever talks about them on here, at least not that I have seen. Anyway, if anyone knows anything, it would be nice to know!!

Yes you can use other vegetables, I like sweet potato but rarely make veggie chips, I'll have to try and make some soon.
I have some recipes that say to put olive oil and dehydrate until crispy, but whenever I put oil they never, ever get crispy, even after days. Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or is the recipe nonsense? I know oil doesn't dehydrate, so how could they get crispy?

You could DEFINATELY do it! When I read the thread title, I thought you meant more of a mixed veggie cracker (perhaps because I made some today...it's already in my brain;)) but you could VERY THINLY slice carrots/sweet potatoes/potatoes/ etc with a mandoline and dehydrate. I think the root veggies work the best, sweet potatoes/yams are my personal fav, even without any seasoning.
I can't imagine what other veggies to use, though...

I make zucchini chips and they are so delish!
I cut zucchini into 1/3" slices and sprinkle chipotle pepper on them lightly, pop them into the dehydrator on 105 degrees for a day and they turn out crunchy, spicy and a little sweet.

Thank you all for the responses!
The zucchini chips are exactly what I meant, because I love them! Thanks again looking forward to trying these out!
